My name is a Paul Jackson and I am a very adamant, hard-working individual who has hopes of becoming a great computer programmer. I plan on making use of the skills I acquire while pursuing my undergraduate degree as a scholar at Norfolk State University; as well as my future graduate degree (from an undecided institution) to help me excel in the corporate world. I plan to pave my own road, as I will be amongst the first of my family to strive for such goals. My goals not only include obtaining a master’s degree and sealing a high-quality career for myself, but ensuring that the people around me (as well as those not around me) may reap the benefits of my decisions as well. I want to instill hope and a sense of purpose in other people’s lives with the abundance of blessings I foresee in my future. In my opinion the hard part is not getting “there” (wherever that may be), however it’s what a person does next that exemplifies how hard he or she is actually willing to work. What a person does after they have reaped the benefits of their own destiny decides what type of legacy shall be left behind. I like to think of it as a reformed spoils system. If one out of a million people make it one step further than the others, it is that one person’s obligation to extend a helping hand and guarantee everyone else’s safe arrival.
